SSL Stuff

If you aren't already familiar with it, you need to check out StartSSL. They offer free SSL certificates with 4096-bit RSA encryption and a minimum of SHA-1 hashing. FREE. Yes. FREE. They also offer Digital ID certificates for use with email (SMIME) and client-certificate authentication to awesome websites, like StartSSL. (The end of passwords!)

You can see my OpenID identity here, which contains my verifications through StartSSL that I am, indeed, who I say I am.

You should be browsing this site through HTTPS, as there is really no reason not to : HTTPS IPv6 and HTTPS IPv4 will direct you to the IPvX specific pages but incur an untrusted certificate (for now, soon to be solved with a wildcard certificate!). To let your browser decide what you want, you can just head here. When it performs the DNS query, it will receive either an A or an AAAA record, depending on your preferred stack (in a dual-stack environment) and head to the appropriate place.

All SSL certificates were obtained through StartSSL and should be trusted in all major browsers.

You can find this site's SSL compliance according to Qualys SSL Labs here. Note that I still need to work on SSL renegotiation. This means I need an OpenSSL newer than my current 0.9.8.12 (0.9.8L), and a new mod_ssl compiled aginst the new OpenSSL. The simplest way to accomplish this is likely just to build a new OpenSSL and then a new Apache.


IPv6 Stuff

For those of you that are IPv6 enabled you can browse this site in IPv6 mode!

To find out your level of IPv6 readiness head over here for a quick test, and here for a more complete test. To test your IPv6 speed, you can check out this site and compare the results to the standard Speedtest.net results for IPv4. ipv6-test.com now also offers IPv4 and IPv6 speed tests through their test, so you can try those too.

If you find, through the above tests, that you aren't IPv6 connected then you can find yourself an IPv6 tunnel broker, like Hurricane Electric (their name alone makes them totally the right choice).

My speed test comparison follows on a connection that is rated at 15Mbps down and 1Mbps up by my ISP:



The IPv6 address shown in the IPv6 speed test is that of my laptop. You can resolve it directly from ares.riebart.ca.
